[Gordon Cumming unveils bronze tablet commemorating centenary of Palmerston North Hospital]

This image was taken for a story that appeared in The Manawatū Evening Standard on 21 December 1994, published with the caption: "A bronze tablet to commemorate the first 100 years of the Palmerston North Hospital was unveiled last night. Hospital centennial committee chairman Gordon Cumming unveiled the sculpture by Palmerston North artist Paul Dibble. It had been placed in the main foyer of the hospital. Mr Cumming said the sculpture, which symbolises a patient and health professionals, was the final gesture from the centennial committee, which last year erected a centennial banner in the hospital chapel.

[Paul Dibble with 'Concrete in the Garden' installation]

This image was taken for a story that ran in The Manawatū Evening Standard on 9 November 1981, titled 'Concrete in the Garden.' It describes the installation of the same name by the Palmerston North artist Paul Dibble (1943-2023) that was on view at the Manawatū Art Gallery.

The impetus for Dibble’s installation was his dislike of the recently-constructed PNCC Civic Administration Building and what he considered the oppressive heaviness of its brutalist concrete form. Instead, his art work “recreated a light fragile space using thin metal rods” which established “the limits of his ‘garden’ and convey that all-important lightness – in an abstract way”. Wax figures recline on strips of artificial grass, while brightly-coloured, sheet-metal parrots are perched on the metal rods. Dibble had weighted the parrots with lead-filled beer bottle tops, which meant that the movement of visitors to the gallery caused the birds to sway gently, animating the space.

Russian Athletes visit City

This image was taken for a story that ran in The Manawatu Evening Standard on 13th January 1966, captioned: "World champion Tamara Press and other Russian athletes arrived at Milson airport this morning for a brief visit to the city. They were met by the public relations officer (Mr. P. Brunton) and two residents of the city who were to act as interpreters. They are seen on their arrival. Later in the day they were taken for a tour of the city and surrounding district."

The two female athletes are Tamara Press (fifth from the left) and her sister Irina Press (seventh from left). The Press sisters set 26 world records between 1959 and 1966.

The man second from left is Michael Kopytko, who was one of the interpreters. The bearded man (sixth from left) is believed to be George Lavrentiev, the other interpreter.
